The World War Z star reportedly met up with his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, in New York prior to his split with Jolie. Is Aniston planning on leaving her husband, Justin Theroux, behind?
Radar Online reports that Pitt secretly met with Aniston in New York weeks before Jolie filed for divorce. It isn’t clear what they met about, though Aniston is now trapped in a surprising love triangle.
“Jen has been talking to Brad,” a source revealed. “She’s told friends it would be a dream to get back together with him. The truth is, she’s been secretly waiting for him to leave Angelina.”
If Aniston was waiting for Pitt to abandon Jolie, she now has her chance to get back with the star.
Apparently, that’s exactly what they did weeks ago during their secret rendezvous. Pitt reportedly opened up his heart to Aniston in a private suite.
The two were spotted on security cameras sneaking into the hotel.
Pitt allegedly tried to rekindle things with Aniston and then talked about his troubled marriage with Jolie.
Aniston left Pitt back in 2005 after he cheated on her while working with Jolie on the movie, Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
Aniston went on to date a few different men before marrying Theroux last year.
Despite the nature of her meeting with Pitt, Aniston wouldn’t tell friends what happened.
“She’s just happy to hear he’s divorcing because she always held on to a little hope,” a source stated. “He’s the love of her life, and she’s never really gotten over him.”
Unfortunately, the source added that Jennifer Aniston is “now trapped between a rock and a hard place, because she does love Justin, but not as much as Brad!”
Aniston has not commented on the secret meeting with Pitt, but Hollywood Life is reporting that Theroux shared his wife’s thoughts on the matter while promoting his new movie, The Girl on the Train.
“[Aniston thinks] it’s boring to sort of comment on anything else. People are having a bad time, that’s horrible,” Theroux shared.
Jolie officially filed for divorce on Sept. 19. The actress had been married to Pitt for only two years at the time of their split, though they had been together for 12 years.
As far as Theroux is concerned, he said that he feels bad for Pitt and Jolie’s kids, who are caught in the middle of all the drama.
Meanwhile, People reveals that Aniston’s longtime friend, Courteney Cox, came to her defense and wants everyone to leave Aniston out of the divorce.
“It’s not about [Jennifer],” Cox shared. “I feel like we’re exacerbating it by event talking about it.”
Shortly after the divorce was announced, fans took to social media with memes and gifs of Aniston. In fact, the actress was the second highest trending tag on Twitter, right after #Brangelina.
While fans were happy to take Aniston’s side, Theroux added that there are more important things going on in the world than Pitt’s divorce.
“There’s an endless appetite for trash, apparently – though everyone would say that they don’t have that appetite,” he stated. “But I think a lot of people do because people buy it. But there are bigger things to bitch about. It’s shocking how much bandwidth things can take up when there are far more important things going on in the world.”
Theroux continued: “As a child of divorce, all I can say is that’s terrible news for those children and that’s all you can really say.”
Pitt and Jolie have six children together: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Know and Vivienne, eight.
